Show Notes

On today’s episode, Clutterbug’s creator Cas Aarssen joins Eric on the podcast!  Cas’s Clutterbug is a home-organizing business which provides education, inspiration, and support to over half a million families worldwide through her YouTube channel, podcast, and various other social media platforms!

Cas is also the author of four best-selling books about organization (listed below)!  As a self-professed recovering “super-slob”, she discovered that through her own journey with clutter, that organization is not one-size-fits-all!  She’s identified four unique organizing styles and developed the Clutterbug method to help individuals discover their type and implement customized solutions that will finally get them organized long-term!

In this episode, you’ll hear tips, stories, and discussions about:

  • What it was like being a hyperactive girl with ADHD
  • From being 15 years old and homeless to becoming an adult and experiencing serious consequences
  • How Cas became interested in home organization and being an ADHD mom – “My house was a wreck!”
  • Big categories vs. small categories and having your house reflect the way YOU organize
  • How an ADHD diagnosis helped change and shift a sense of self
  • “Maybe I’m doing all this cool stuff because I have ADHD!”
  • Having higher education does not necessarily mean you can’t be great or do great things, such as having a TV show or having 4 bestselling books
  • Cas’s four different types of organizing, how you store your things, and how you sort your things
  • Just because you’re a visual person doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a “cluttery” person
  • Turning subconscious tendencies into actionable and functional organization
  • Visual homes vs. piles and taking advantage of how you naturally sort things
  • How perfection can turn into procrastination and paralysis
  • Being detailed and detail-oriented vs. being a perfectionist
  • Learned behaviors, environmental behaviors, and other things that make our organizing styles unique
  • Containers, bowls, boundaries, and self-awareness
  • “We are gathering more than our brains can manage.” / “Everything you own is something you have to remember…”
  • The actual differences between tidying, cleaning, decluttering, and organizing
  • How to start decluttering, the anxiety around getting rid of things, and scarcity mindsets
  • Having a tidy home that fits your organization style is a form of self-love and self-respect
  • Clutter-blindness / Safety, security, and mindset around money vs. accumulating things
  • Selling on eBay or Facebook Marketplace isn’t always the answer
  • Standing up to your clutter / You are not your stuff!
